Barrow-Downs Dreams
 
I just thought of this, there was a thread a little like this except it was different.

I was curious if any one has ever had a Barrow-Downs dream. Envolving the Barrow-Downs, the Barrow Wight or any BD member. What happened in the dream?

I mentioned this in another thread, but Ill say it again. I had a dream that Feanor of the Peredhil was a dog and she was rummaging through my garbage bins.

How about you?

mormegil 05-16-2005 03:27 PM

Well I had a dream just last night (or was it two nights ago) about the Isle of Werewolf game. Being the seer I found it comical but nothing was actually reveled in this dream.

Feanor of the Peredhil 05-16-2005 04:02 PM

Should I be flattered, or worried? ;)

I don't suppose you would know what breed I am, would you? In keeping with the theme of mormegil's post, it would be hilarious if you dreamt I was a wolfhound. :D

I can't remember ever dreaming about 'Downers, but I did once dream that Gimli was actually a girl in disguise (very like in form and appearance, and all that). That was just plain weird.

Firefoot 05-16-2005 04:11 PM

There was a thread like this a little while ago: Your LotR Dream. It wasn't so specific to "Barrow-downs dreams," but I know people have posted those on that thread (I have). If you have time, there are definitely some things in there worth a read. Some of those dreams are awfully funny.

AbercrombieOfRohan 05-16-2005 04:39 PM

Maybe it isn't necessarily realted to the Barrowdowns, but it's still pretty cool... I dreamt that:

I was in a store looking at a poster when it suddenly started moving. The horses hooves started galloping and so forth, when all of a sudden a tenth nazgul came in the picture. Except he didn't necessarily look like a nazgul, because he was sort of sillier, I don't really know how to describe it. It was like he didn't take his job as a wraith of Sauron very seriously. Well, then the names of all the nazgul starting popping up over their heads in little speech bubbles; Witch-king of Angmar etc. Until it came to the tenth nazgul and his bubble said Skippy the Nazgul.

Well, I was throughly impressed with that dream and remians to this day, my very favorite.

Eomer of the Rohirrim 05-17-2005 06:09 AM

Absolutely. I once had a dream that HerenIstarion came to dinner at my house. The only thing I remember about it was that I got very drunk and he kept laughing at me.

What does it all mean? :D

Isn't it obvious, Eomer? It means that deep down inside, you are striving to impress, but don't necessarily feel like you are succeeding. That, and that you are secretly a pirate. Argh, me matey, and all that. Plus, in the deepest recesses of your mind, you are a raccoon. The first is a bit of a stretch, I'll admit, but the second two should be obvious to all. :p

Oddwen 05-17-2005 07:56 AM

Hmm...last night I dreamed that there was a two minute walk between my brother's Arby's and a really cool lampwork bead store...but between the two, there was this dumpster and Nilpaurion Fegalund kept jumping out to talk to me...heh.

Actually, what happened was I created a spell that lets me sneak into your dreams. Gotcha! :p

I'm positive I've had dreams about the 'Downs before, but my dreams tend to fade away quickly and I don't remember them for long.

the phantom 05-17-2005 01:57 PM

Just the other day, I had a dream that there was a new thread on the Barrow-Downs. The thread was entirely devoted to people having dreams about other members. Yeah, I know- kind of weird and far out there. I was getting pretty scared but then I woke up and I was like "Whew- it was just a dream."

Tigerlily Gamgee 05-17-2005 02:53 PM

*giggle*
I can't say that I've ever had a BD dream (though I had a dream of meeting someone from the forum on my website once). I have had LOTR dreams, but it has been a while. That's not to say that there wasn't something once that I don't remember. My dreams are so far out there that I can't even tie together what had happened in them. I find, though, that I dream most vividly when I'm sick and on cold medicine... perhaps tonight shall be fun (if I have a BD dream I'm surely post it).
Plus, since I'm making the new picture page, many of your faces are more familiar in my head now... before that was not the case.

Orominuialwen 05-17-2005 03:43 PM

Quite a while ago, before the forum software changed, I had a dream that I got 10 PMs (the limit back then) all at once. That was pretty much all there was to the dream, which is rather odd, since my dreams tend to be rather long and complicated.

the guy who be short 05-19-2005 11:30 AM

After fervently following the werewolf game thread, I dreamt about werewolves. They were all around my house... then they got me (on my garage roof for some reason). :eek: See, BD can actually be bad for you!

Feanor of the Peredhil 05-19-2005 11:33 AM

I had a dream, and I think it was about the phantom, but I can't for the life of me remember. I think it had something to do with the werewolf game. Go figure.

I would say "Awww, that's sweet", but I'm thinking the dream involved one of us killing the other since it had to do with the werewolf game.

Oh- but I suppose there is a chance that in the dream I saved you from a werewolf. Just in case that was what happened- aww, that's sweet.

Feanor of the Peredhil 05-20-2005 07:41 AM

I honestly don't remember. It could have been anything from me getting you lynched, to our "marriage" and the children I never knew I had, to you viciously killing me. Or it might not have been you at all. I hate it when I can't remember dreams.

???? Not so obvious... What do you (actually) mean, Fea?

I had a dream that there was a big BD meeting and all barrow-downers came there... It was actually not so horrible dream... :cool:

Larien Telemnar 06-01-2005 08:44 PM

I once had a dream that I was a member of the fellowship, and I got shot and died. Wait, no that was real, that's how I ended up here. ;)

THE Ka 06-01-2005 09:10 PM

Okay, last night was really wierd.

I had a dream where I took a boat across an inlet, and it was rather sunny. I was wearing a dark purple cloak ( in such heat I have no reason why!), and there were no oars, or oar rings. The boat just glided to some island. It was in complete shade, and looked like a mole on the lake's face. So, i decided since it was hot out, and I was apparently stupid enough to dress foolishly for it, I decided to get out and go onto the island. When I was under the shade, BW came out and told me to go away because I was not properly dressed for the 'occasion'. I gave him a puzzled look, and asked what occasion it could possibly be. All he did was give a 'humpt' and stamped off shaking his head. Then, I sat on the shore and stared out at the water. Then the dream ends.

I'm guessing it's a reminder to not wear dark clothing in warm weather, but it hasn't been sunny out for about a month now where I live. Very confusing... :(

A while ago, I had a dream in which I was at a medieval kind's court, and The Barrow Wight (All ghost like and green) was chasing The Saucepan Man with a knife. The King seemed to be amused by this.

I have no idea of what this dream may mean, except that I should perhaps not eat cheese.

cookieman 06-02-2005 02:49 AM

I remember a dream where I was in a wite's barrow several years ago. I don't remember much about it except that I was entombed, and there was a greenish light and I was in danger.

It means that after looking at my B.S. first interpretation, I realized that it ended up sounding far too high-brow and intellectual (and worst of all, possibly somewhat accurate) so I offset it with some humor. The pirate one should be obvious, because as we all know, Eomer is a kilt-toting swash-buckling scaliwag. The second... just me goofing off. There's a trick that I wish people would learn... never take anything I say seriously, or personally.

Eomer of the Rohirrim 06-02-2005 11:09 AM

The truth will out: Fea is actually just the latest victim of The Dream Manipulator. (anyone remember that?)

But I have had a couple of werewolf related dreams of late. Scary stuff!

the phantom 06-02-2005 05:58 PM

Considering that I've been playing werewolf here on the Downs as well as watching "Van Helsing", "Underworld", "Buffy", and "Angel" these past few weeks, I can't believe that I haven't had a single werewolf dream. I really want to have one. I love dreams.

That reminds me that I did once have a dream with the Saucepan Man in it. Problem with my dreams though...I never remember them. :rolleyes:

I'm beginning to hate dreams, because I had an awful nightmare a few nights ago that left me terrified to go back to sleep. The Barrow-Wight wasn't terrorizing me in it, though, unlike the dreams of certain others. ;) Funny that he's in so many people's dreams... SpM too. Maybe they're using their moderating skillz to hack into our minds... :eek: :p

Firefoot 06-07-2005 06:31 AM

I had a dream last night involving the Werewolf game...

The werewolves (or maybe it was Eomer) were bombing the village, and miraculously after all their bombs had been expended no one had been killed despite that the village was in utter ruins, so we were wondering whether the guardian had been at work or if it was something else. Then we found a bomb (called a ticking time bomb - don't ask) that was set to go off soon. Then I woke up.

I think I dreamed I was getting lynched, too. Except it was rather pleasant.

The Only Real Estel 06-14-2005 10:06 AM

I did have a werewolf dream one of the first nights.

I dreamed that Fordim voted for me out of the blue because I didn't like his new plans that he was trying to introduce. That made me very suspicious of him for voting on a whim like that & I had to make sure that I didn't let that suspicion creep into the real game based on a silly dream. :D

I don't see why I can't just dream "these three are the wolves, post as convincingly as you can & hang wisely." :p

Morsul the Dark 06-14-2005 12:17 PM

Well let's see last night It was more of a daydream because I wasn't asleep iwasnt awake either though if you get my meaning but at anyrate for those who read barrowdowns musical H-I Perky Ent Enca and I were all sing the threads go ever on and on in old fashioned caroling gear in winter...man I miss winter summer is all hot and stuff

Hookbill I think I had the opposite of your dream last night because I dreamt that The Saucepan Man was chasing the Barrow Wight (though in my dream he was surprisingly white) and beating him over the head with his pans.

And as this was before I read through this thread I'm wondering if you somehow have found a way into my dreams - spooky! :eek:

The Saucepan Man 06-14-2005 05:08 PM

Hmm, there seems to be a recurring image here of the Barrow-Wight and I engaged in some sort of eternal struggle. Veeeery interesting ... :eek:

Funnily enough, before the last game of Werewolf finished but after I got lynched, I had a dream that Fordim Hedgethistle won the game as the last Werewolf, and I had an "I knew it!" kind of reaction. Seems that my subconscious self is just as bad at the game as my conscious self ... :( :D

the guy who be short 06-17-2005 01:02 PM

I dreamt that I was banned from the Barrow Downs for being a terrible Moderator in Tol-in-Gaurhoth IV.:( My insecurities revealed for all to see...

Very annoyingly, I had both a LotR and a different BD dream recently but forgot about them after climbing out of bed. It is just so annoying when that happens.

Oh well. t was probably something to do with SpM and the Barrow Wight killing one another.;)

Feanor of the Peredhil 06-17-2005 01:16 PM

I had an Eomer of the Rohirrim induced image of Saucie shoving davem into a fridge and nailing the door shut as Lal beat him [Saucie] upside the francis with his own pans. Does that count?

If you don't believe me, ask Eomer. He knows I had the vision. :rolleyes: After all, it's his fault.

Eomer of the Rohirrim 06-17-2005 01:57 PM

I'm obviously far too powerful for my own good.

However Fea, it's entirely your own subconscious that brought Saucepan Man into that little scenario.

Sigmund Freud would be riveted by this thread.

Oddwen 06-17-2005 02:00 PM

I had a dream about WWf IV last night...all I can remember is that Zali was nowhere to be found, everyone was suspicious of me even though I made many many little nonsense posts, and the phantom was killed right off the bat. Needless to say, he was NOT happy about it.
Plus, there was like three people besides EomerotR who had Snoopy avatars in exactly the same colors, so that was confusing too.

Don't be afraid, we won't do so (like we really would have done it before... :p )...

Last night I had a dream about a BD house. All downers lived there and it was like a hotel and everybody got their nicks in their doors. I remember I ruined Phantom's name text by overwriting "Lord Volkh" (a charachter from a book I read a few weeks ago...)...

Lhunardawen 06-22-2005 01:29 AM

No, I never had a BD dream. But I sure want to have one. The problem is, I'd never know if I'm having a BD dream because...how will I know if it's a BD dream? Do I see randomly beautiful colors rummage my garbage bins? Or orange fireworks suddenly showing up at my house? Do I see a long-nosed, black-and-white man with a saucepan on his head being chased by a ghostly green figure wielding a knife? How do I know?

Would someone please, please, help me?

I don't have a future in theatre. :D

Orominuialwen 06-27-2005 06:15 PM

I had a very strange dream the other night. I remember very little of it, other than that it concerned me, Fea, and Gilthalion, who had somehow become a delinquent 13-year-old girl. :eek: I don't really remember what happened in the dream, but I believe we were wandering around in the middle of my street.
